The Freedom of The Bolts

Mark Twight has his bible and manifesto. It’s called The Freedom of the Hills which is about as long as the KJV and about as hard to understand. It’s time that sport climbers have their own manifesto-a single compendium where a gumby can pack his arsenal with the little tricks used by experienced sport climbers without looking like a douche. After all, that’s what P&C is all about–not looking like a douche. In the coming weeks, we’ll cover such things as stick clipping, rodeo clipping, granny clipping, sport aid, leadership techniques, batmanning and boinking and every other trick in the book to make you look like you climb 5.14.

Whiskey Wednesday!!

At first I was going to give the WW to the Alpinist (which, if you haven’t heard, has closed shop). That was until I read this thread on Mountainproject and realized that I love to hate the people who love to love Alpinist. Then I was going to give it to Alex Puccio for the shit she’s been crushing. But a minute ago, I realized that today is Wig’s birthday. How often do you get a birthday on a Whiskey Wednesday?!  And since Wig was THE guy who got the crew PSYCHED about the Sundowner and the WW, I had to pay him due tribute.

All I have to say about Wig is that he is simultaneously the most irresponsible and charismatic person I’ve ever met. The guy has talked me into doing more dumb shit than anybody I know. He talked me into leading S-wall, which is 5.9, 220 feet, and 3 bolts. Jesus. He’s also talked me into doing things with my money(usually the Casino) I usually wouldn’t dream of. Allow me to illustrate.
